ave you ever tasted the aperitif called Lillet? I have been somewhat intrigued by it lately and am so curious to try it. It's made with a blend of wine, orange liqueurs, and herbs. Lots of recipes have been popping up featuring the white wine or "blanc" version. Most of them are, of course, drink recipes. But not all. Check out the marshmallows...
- Lavender and Lillet Lemonade. Summer in a glass.
- A proper cocktail with Lillet and basil
- Lillet flavored marshmallows sound dreamy but what do you serve them with? S'mores, hot cocoa, more Lillet?
- White peaches poached in Lillet and lemon verbena... need I say more?
- Drink it James Bond-style (shaken, as you know, not stirred) in his signature Vesper martini.
- Vanilla Panna Cotta with Lillet-Strawberry Coulis. I've always wanted to try Panna Cotta also (talk about killing two birds with one stone). You can pretty much bet that I will find a reason to make this very soon! This uses Lillet Rouge by the way.

Pronounced: lee-LAY. Ask for Lillet Blanc or Lillet Rouge, to specify the white or red wine-based version. Lillet Blanc is described as light and refreshing, while the Rouge is flavorful and intense. Both are best served over ice with a splash of soda... and don't forget the twist.
